This week’s header image comes from Newton and the Apple Tree, which has an active Kickstarter and a demo that just released this week.
VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status Updates Series) is published each Saturday and brings the latest updates from VN translation projects — both licensed and by fans — from around the net. If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let us know in the comments.
From The Team: I was feeling nostalgic, so I thought I’d give ya’ll a classic Saturday morning VNTS. As a side note, we haven’t been tracking the Umineko fighting game because it’s not a VN, but as a VN-related thing we thought we’d give it at least some form of highlight. It went on sale on Steam yesterday. I dunno how it ranks in the grand pantheon of anime fighting games, but maybe check it out if you’re into that?

Zakabox™ 「 … 」- Zaka’s been a chatty cathy lately. Will he keep it up and provide his commentary yet again this week? Who knows!
Decay’s MusingsAin’t nothing happening this week, huh? Oh well. That’s how it goes sometimes.
This week’s Album of the Week is Embers from Throwing Snow. It’s a strong mix of atmospheric and melodic electronic music that I found to be really good to work to.
